Manchester United line up defender with the world at his feet

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Nov 17th 2016

It seems to be common knowledge that Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for defensive reinforcements, with speculation surrounding the long-term futures of Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian.

Currently facing a spell on the sidelines as a result of a fractured arm, Luis Antonio Valencia has been one of the shining lights in the Red Devils’ rearguard so far this season, but it seems that even his place in the side is far from certain.

ELSEID HYSAJ

According to reports in the Daily Express, Manchester United are plotting a £25m January move for Elseid Hysaj, a right-back who starred for Albania at Euro 2016.

The 22-year-old only made his Serie A debut at the beginning of the 2014/15 campaign, securing a summer switch to Napoli after helping Empoli to keep ten top-flight clean sheets:

Far from being phased by his move to a bigger club, Hysaj took no time in ousting Italy international Christian Maggio from the team, going on to help his side to register 14 shutouts in the league.

An incredibly consistent performer with a maturity beyond his years, the Albania international appears ideally-suited to life under Mourinho.
